Just days after Jay Mohr roasted her, among others, during NASCAR Champion's Week in Las Vegas, Danica Patrick was on the other side of the microphone hosting the American Country Awards with country music superstar Trace Adkins.

Patrick poked fun at herself during a Vegas showgirls routine toward the middle of the show, saying "There's no chance for a wardrobe malfunction. There's not much to malfunction."

Other highlights included Adkins dressed in a firesuit similar to the one Danica wears on race day, only much bigger, of course, and FOX Sports' Joe Buck and Michelle Beisner showing up as surprise guests to announce the Artist of the Year, who was Luke Bryan.

The show took place at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, and Patrick was accompanied by boyfriend and fellow NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver Ricky Stenhouse Jr.
